    Cool, thanks, that fixes the floating point bug... but it's still not
    working properly.

    Now when I test the backend, scanimage goes into an infinite loop
    and I am left with no choice but to hit Ctrl-C.

    The debug output of "scanimage -T" (which I put up at ) has a scary
    looking line near the end that says:

    [snapscan] (undef): Hung up because expected bytes is 0. Please report! I figure I'd better do as it says :)

    Anyway, I'll stock up on chocolate, Coca-Cola and cigarettes and see
    what I can do tonight - but I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to the
    mysterious world of SCSI so I doubt I'll be able to come up with much.
